How to Spot Lies Whilst Dating Online

can i online date

Mature dating online is, without a doubt, one of the very best ways for over fifty daters to find love. The internet has revolutionised the way that we learn, interact and share, with recent reports even stating that more couples who meet online have longer lasting relationships than those who meet elsewhere.

Meeting online gives the security of being able to talk and get to know each other before meeting, helping you to know whether they’re right for you and even helping to lay the foundations of a relationship down the line.

However, we often hear from customers that when online dating, they can’t often be sure that the person on the other side of the screen is telling you the truth.

Of course, there are always little lies that we tell ourselves or others to keep our pride, like lying about our job, whether we smoke or how much we drink. Though these ‘little white lies’ are troubling to an extent, they’re no different to the kind you might say in a bar, or write in your CV. A multitude of those little lies though? Well, that indicates something else going on.

Whilst the vast majority of men and women on over 50 dating websites are honest in their goals and intentions, there are always a handful which sneak in looking for something extramarital. Other times, lies might be covering up their past, or something they find shameful.

So what are the main warning signs that something maybe amiss? This would depend on what the problem is, how important it is to you and how much you look for the signs.

Does he text or call during the working hours and less so in the evening? Although this could be due to his job, a lack of calls in the evening could indicate that he is not alone. Being on the phone during a date could also be another warning sign, not only is it incredibly rude to be texting someone when on a date I would question how urgent that text really is.

For the small issues, if they are issues to you, the signs may be a little harder to spot. If you don’t like excessive drinkers it may take some time to find out that they like a drink 5 or 6 nights a week and you may not discover things like this until the relationship has become somewhat serious. Is your man likely to become controlling? Again this might take a little while to surface but there may be little clues from early on. Excessive phone calls and questions if you don’t answer straight away could be a sign they are ‘keeping tabs’ on you.

Whether you can see a possible problem or not the best way to identify anything is to follow your instincts. We all have them, whether you call them female intuition or something else, if your ‘gut feeling’ tells you there is something wrong then listen to it, that is why it is there.
